E68: Meet Dave Pantos with the Tenant Assistance Project

In this episode we talk about evictions, legal process, and renter’s rights (or lack thereof) with Dave Pantos. Dave has been an attorney for 25 years, volunteers about 2 times a week helping renters realize their rights in court, is a current candidate for Douglas County Attorney.

Fast Fasts on evictions: 

  • -Tenants who don’t have attorneys will get evicted 98% of the time
  • -Tenants who have attorneys are usually able to avoid or delay losing their homes
  • -Eviction hearings usually only last 90 seconds when the tenant has no attorney
  • -Tenants who do not show up for their eviction hearings will almost certainly be evicted
